Thank you in advance for any advise you can provide for our upcoming trip to Australia. There are 3 of us traveling and we want to see as much as possible, without feeling too rushed. We are willing to do flights, but want to do at least one or two drives that will give us a good feel for certain parts of the Country. Right now we are considering driving Sydney south along the coast all the way to the end of the Great Ocean Rd, then up to Melbourne. Is a week a realistic time frame for that…
We have 5 days to spend in the Melbourne area. Planning to visit Phillip island for penguin viewing and drive the Great Ocean Road. may have a day or two let for Melbourne. Any suggestions of Melbourne "must do" would be most appreciated. Any good places to stay?

Hi all I am flying out to cairns on Feb 9th booked accom at Gilligans then just planning to work my way down east coast to Sydney over a 6 week period, travelling alone if anyone wants to meet up or any plans to do :)
My mother has asked me to plan a family holiday for her 60th this year and her choice destinations were the Great Barrier Reef, Tasmania, the Snowy Mountains or New Zealand.
Her birthday is early October so I was looking to book about 10 days in one of these locations during the October school holidays. She's a real country girl so normally somewhere like the Great Barrier Reef isn't usually her type of holiday, however, she has said she wants to see it before it disappears completely…
Hi.. Has anyone ever done this walk? Any advice? I am a reasonably fit guy.. Can walk 25 30 km with ease.. Places to stay.. Safety concerns.. Just anything to set me up would be appreciated.. I plan to do it in the month of may...
We're coming to Australia in mid May for three weeks, flying in and out of Sydney, and need some help with coming up with a rough itinerary. We'd like to spend 1 or 2 days in Sydney, visit Australia Zoo, sail around the Whitsundays, spend some time around Cairns, visit Uluru, and would also like do some kind of ranching homestay. We are happy to fly between places. Also, is there anywhere it's really worth splashing out? Thanks.
Two of us are putting together our plan for aus, we land in Sydney early May and planning on renting a camper for a month. Probably do the east coast and see what happens on our travels, we are currently selling everything as we build up a fund and emergency fund. Having done South America and almost all of Europe Im seeing aus as a different ball game.
Any advice on a 6 months to a year trip in austraila from estimated money, is it worth renting a camper van for a month and anything…
years ago I toured the duyfken while it was in cairns check out the duyfken foundation? who knows you might just change your travel plans. the duyfken arrived in Australia many years ahead of cook.
my age precludes me from going any further re volunteering etc. but to one or two of you its a chance of a lifetime.
here tobi. i will rent a camper and travel around with them for 5-7weeks. start in Sydney 03.02, than Melbourne, Adelaide and Perth. I would like visit festivals, national parks and beautiful beaches. The camper is for two persons and so i look for one companion to share the time, fun, australia and money. do you want to travel with me, all the way or part way, please let me know :)
when you have a driver´s license, perfect!
Best regards and be happy
I'm biting the bullet and have decided to take time out and travel australia. I am just waiting for my 600 visa. First question is, does anyone know how long they take to get approved. I've done loads of research, and the government website says a day, but then oppinions vary. I have sent my financial details to them proving I have £20k to travel with and also an itinerary.
I am also in a quandary. I am really tempted to just bum around and live in hostels but am not reconsidering and thinking…
